Photos: Folsom Street Fair celebrates empowerment and erections, but mostly erections

posted at 4:46 pm on October 4, 2007 by Allahpundit

High culture in progressivism’s capital city, captured for posterity in Zombie’s latest anthropology experiment. Hey, remember that old Onion article about gay-pride parades setting gay rights back by 50 years? This one should be worth about 100. No kids around this time, though, thankfully.

I don’t drink much beer, but Miller Genuine Draft was probably my favorite mass-marketed American beer. Shame. It’s hard to find Coors anymore…it’s always Coors Lite, even when you ask for a “Coors”.

And we wonder why the Islamofascists want to see our society burn.

Yeah, I’m sure “gay leather-clad blow jobs in the streets” is on the top of their list.

A discreet picture of Larry Craig might be superimposed, for example…

Home brew mine, ten times better and my money doesn’t go for supporting illegal immigration or homophobe dare fests, in case you didn’t know that’s what this was.

Think our CIA is using Zombie pictures for torturing fundamentalists in secret prisons?? They only stop if the prisoner yells, “palomino”.

Wasn’t Kristen Weig great as Pelosi?? Only funny because it’s based on fact.

So this is what the gay agenda is all about.

Sodom and Gomorrah indeed.

infidel4life on October 4, 2007 at 8:30 PM

You know what… I don’t care, let them do what they want, it’s a free country. But I don’t want these people teaching my kids or taking them into the woods on a camping trip or being the pastor at my church…. but the hardcore gay agenda wants all of those things.

You allow gay marriage, which will be the official U.S. government seal of approval on the gay lifestyle and you won’t be able to stop them from being Boy Scout leaders or Girl Scout leaders or stop them from being church leaders without being sued out of your panties.

Or maybe even worse, if they get hate-crime laws passed, you won’t even be allowed to verbally object without criminal penalties. And don’t even think about saying that homosexuality is a sin in a public forum, you will be locked up or at least be going to re-education camp sensitivity training. Is anyone starting to understand why stopping gay marriage is so important ?

I really feel sorry for you, and those who make statements like that.

You really couldn’t be more wrong.

No….this is not what the “gay agenda” (whatever that is) is all about.

Was that 2nd pix some kind of S&M fundraiser?

JetBoy on October 4, 2007 at 9:08 PM

Don’t feel sorry for me, feel sorry for the pathetic freaks on the streets of San Francisco in those pictures. That’s where the problem lies. My reaction to it is just natural revulsion.

infidel4life on October 4, 2007 at 10:23 PM

Wait until this sickness begins to spread to your hometown and on your front street. And then,, just expand the definition of homophobia to include those who do not partake. Expand the definition of a hate monger to include those who do not participate. Eventually, that must and will be the normal course of things. These kinds of homosexuals, the activists, will not remain satisfied with people choosing to stay quietly in their homes.

JellyToast on October 4, 2007 at 10:27 PM

infidel4life on October 4, 2007 at 10:23 PM

Yes, they’re pathetic freaks. Yes, I feel the same revulsion. But like I said at the top of this thread, this is not representative of gays.

The mainstream gay agenda, of which you speak, is simply a vocal minority. Most gays don’t flaunt the fact. We’re your average guys next door.

It’s just your little Sodom statement hit me the wrong way. btw, Sodom and Gomorrah weren’t destroyed because of homosexuality….it was sexual perversion of all kinds, among other things. Just sayin’…

JetBoy on October 4, 2007 at 10:39 PM

JetBoy on October 4, 2007 at 10:39 PM

I agree that it’s certainly not representative of most gays I’ve been acquainted with in my life, who are just people who are more or less normal (whatever normal is). But the gay community will never be taken seriously if this is the kind of image that is presented publicly. Mr. and Mrs. Average American are disgusted by this exhibitionist crap.

infidel4life on October 4, 2007 at 11:27 PM

There are an awful lot of homosexuals who gleefully attend this fair and many more who defend their behavior. This is certainly representative of the gay culture and anyone who is familiar with San Francisco and Fire Island, NY, knows that fact.

These people are allowed to foster and adopt innocent little children. Which “professionals” make decisions of this nature and why do we, as a society allow it? It’s frightening because we all sit around and talk about this behavior and are disgusted and horrified but precious little innocent and malleable children are being handed off to homosexuals. Political correctness and this sort of social experimentation and debauchery will do its part to destroy this great nation.

Genesis 19 (New Living Translation)

Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed

1 That evening the two angels came to the entrance of the city of Sodom. Lot was sitting there, and when he saw them, he stood up to meet them. Then he welcomed them and bowed with his face to the ground. 2 “My lords,” he said, “come to my home to wash your feet, and be my guests for the night. You may then get up early in the morning and be on your way again.”

“Oh no,” they replied. “We’ll just spend the night out here in the city square.”

3 But Lot insisted, so at last they went home with him. Lot prepared a feast for them, complete with fresh bread made without yeast, and they ate. 4 But before they retired for the night, all the men of Sodom, young and old, came from all over the city and surrounded the house. 5 They shouted to Lot, “Where are the men who came to spend the night with you? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!”

6 So Lot stepped outside to talk to them, shutting the door behind him. 7 “Please, my brothers,” he begged, “don’t do such a wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two virgin daughters. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do with them as you wish. But please, leave these men alone, for they are my guests and are under my protection.”

9 “Stand back!” they shouted. “This fellow came to town as an outsider, and now he’s acting like our judge! We’ll treat you far worse than those other men!” And they lunged toward Lot to break down the door.

10 But the two angels[a] reached out, pulled Lot into the house, and bolted the door. 11 Then they blinded all the men, young and old, who were at the door of the house, so they gave up trying to get inside.

12 Meanwhile, the angels questioned Lot. “Do you have any other relatives here in the city?” they asked. “Get them out of this place—your sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or anyone else. 13 For we are about to destroy this city completely. The outcry against this place is so great it has reached the Lord, and he has sent us to destroy it.”

======================================================

Lot offered his virgin daughters, but the crowd of men didn’t want the young women, they wanted the men.

The Freakshow Left in all of their resplendent glory.

Bloody hell.

Well, that settles it…I’m not going to be able to eat for the next three days…I’ve already had my fill of sausage.

fusionaddict on October 5, 2007 at 3:05 AM

And I know this is not a representation of gays

This is representative of homosexual men the world over. They identify themselves by what they do with their genitals. “Gay Lifestyle”. Do you think that refers to the kind of kitchenware they purchase?

peacenprosperity on October 5, 2007 at 6:32 AM

Always kept miller and mgd in my fridge, those days are gone forever. It’s Sam Adams or water from here on out.

leanright on October 5, 2007 at 7:00 AM

Heh, Craig taps his foot in the can and gets arrested; these ass hats skip around nude, give BJ’s in public, bring their little kids in strollers with bottles to watch and they get sponsors. WTF?

Alden Pyle on October 5, 2007 at 7:44 AM

I will never, ever agree, capitulate, compromise, accept that this is normal, good, healthy or just an alternate lifestyle! This is sickness! This is perversion! This is sin! It has always been sin! It will always be sin! God does not care how many rich, famous, influential, talented Americans embrace this perversion! God is not influenced by experts with degrees from prestigious schools that proclaim sin as normal! God is not moved by priests and pastors that proclaim sin acceptable and good! God’s heart is not moved by institutions and schools that create doctrines and programs espousing the virtues of sin! Let all the world shout that sin is no longer sin and God is unmoved!
Yes,, God loves the world,, He came and shed His blood on the cross for the sins of the world,, He died for each and every one of us,, His mercy is ever present,, His Goodness and Kindness is greater than we know,,, His desire is that ALL PEOPLE WOULD BE SAVED,,, HE DOES NOT WANT ANYONE TO GO TO HELL,, but he does not change,, He is the same today and yesterday and forever,,
I am not saying this in a trivial way,, but I do not care what it costs anymore,, I will not compromise! I am a libertarian at heart in many ways,,, people should be free to live the lives they want,,, as long as I am free to call sin sin, you can be free to live in sin,,, but,, I will not agree to be told I must accept this as normal. If it cost me my job, oh well. If I get thrown out of my home,, Jesus was told to leave his home town as well.
Just another rant by me.

JellyToast on October 5, 2007 at 8:24 AM

Mad propz to Zombie… the man has literally “taken” several for the team.

So many ugly, nude people. Shudder.

saint kansas on October 5, 2007 at 9:06 AM

The next time President ImOnAMadJihad wants to speak to the American people, I think we have found the proper venue.

BohicaTwentyTwo on October 5, 2007 at 9:23 AM

…but they were there

SilverStar830 on October 4, 2007 at 6:34 PM

How were they allowed in when it’s commonly known that things like this happen there?

If you show your kid porn, you’re committing child abuse. How is this any different?

Esthier on October 5, 2007 at 9:36 AM

BTW were this a heterosexual display of equal magnitude I would be equally appalled.

I completely agree. What goes on behind your closed doors is none of my business–and I don’t want to know, anyhow.

But on another note, it WOULDN’T be a heterosexual display, as it never would have happened if it was for heteros. Too many of the sickos that were at this thing would have been first in line to picket the city/state government to STOP a freakshow like this, if it were hetero.

What’s good for the goose is never good for the gander. Especially when it comes to things like this.

infidel4life on October 4, 2007 at 8:30 PM

This is why I, as a gay man, hate and despise “gay culture”.

So there are freaky S&M gay people. There are also freaky S&M straight people. All sorts of people have all sorts of sexual practices that I find revolting (such as vaginal sex, for instance). So what? As long as they’re not depriving any other individual of life, liberty, or property, then let them do as they will.

What angers me is that proponents of “gay culture” state that being “gay” means enthusiastically embracing the extreme exhibition of any sexual fetish, particularly and especially if it irritates straight Christians. Then I get blamed for this and get accused of wanting this simply because I am gay.

I do hope that there are some conservatives here who realize that not all gay people are into this “gay culture” excrement.

Loundry on October 5, 2007 at 1:44 PM

Unfortunately Loundry, you don’t get luxury of not being identified with them since you are in the minority. It’s like me as a conservative Christian black man not identifying with the “hip hop” culture. However, we both can see the negative impact of these type behavoral cultures on our society at large.

apostle53 on October 5, 2007 at 1:57 PM

The cities primary school age population continues to decline. I wonder why?

Zaire67 on October 5, 2007 at 2:56 PM

Unfortunately Loundry, you don’t get luxury of not being identified with them since you are in the minority. It’s like me as a conservative Christian black man not identifying with the “hip hop” culture.

With that comment, I feel a kinship with you that surprises me. I will admit to you that I have been subjected to the worst sort of hate from liberal gays because of my rejection of “gay culture”. I mean, it’s shocking how much they hate my guts. They call me things like “Stepford gay” and “suburban housewife”.

What nasty names do you get called?

However, we both can see the negative impact of these type behavoral cultures on our society at large.

apostle53 on October 5, 2007 at 1:57 PM

I think it’s a shame that people are pressured to conform to the self-destructive tenets of thug culture and gay culture. The beliefs and attitudes that are conferred by those cultures are harmful to the people who adhere to them. I admire your bravery.
